of the united states. but the debt ceiling of course is something he'll be asked about today but there's a number of other issues, but among them, the recent picks in his cabinet, he's received a lot of criticism for his top cabinet picks recently being all white men. he'll be asked about the lack of diversity that we have seen in those picks, we have also seen the resignation recently of his labor secretary hilda solis, we found out that one of his chiefs of staff, will be leaving the white house. she had been considered the long shot for being his new chief of staff. and also wolf, he'll be asked, i suspect about guns, he said after the presidential debates that he supported the reinstatement of the assault weapons ban. if it requires a lot of political capital push for congress to do what will be a very heavy lift. so we're looking at more certainty on what will be ---solutions on gun violence. we're expecting recommendations from the vice president tomorrow and we're expecting president obama to act shortly after that, wolf. >> we do know if those recommendations from the vice pres
that he's not going to use the debt ceiling as a bargaining chip. but we've got to get to sitting down and working out a deal that's going to really address the nation's problems. we've got to do something about guns. he's got to stake out some territory in which the white house won't retreat from. >> chip, how much is this a sell of the american people? >> well, i mean, i think right now as kind of like the governor said, set the tone. >> forgive me for interrupting but the president is out now in the eastern room. let's take a listen. >> good morning. i thought it might make some sense to take some questions this week as my first term comes to an end. it's been a busy and productive four years, and i expect the same for the next four years. i intend to carry out the agenda that i campaigned on, agenda for new jobs, new opportunity, and new security for the middle class. now, right now our economy is growing and our businesses are creating new jobs. so we are poised for a good year if we make smart decisions and sound investments. and as long as washington politics don't get in the wa

's have a robust debate regarding the debt ceiling. is that something that republicans are willing to do here, or it must be linked? the two have to go hand in hand? >> reporter: they are insisting, and when i say they, i'm talking about house republicans and the senate republican leader, but they have to go hand in hand. this is something that we heard over and over and over again when we had this debate the last time, back in the summer of 2011. andion that ve ioion you know t suzanne. but the house speaker and his aides are telling us that they really mean it this time. that there has to be a dollar of spending cuts for every dollar that the u.s. agrees to raise the debt limit. and that they would even go for a two or three-month extension as they try to work on a more global discussion of cutting spending. but even if there's an extension, it has to go point by point. the other thing i want to mention, suzanne, which i thought was really interesting, after covering the white house under george bush, that last question about the fact that he doesn't socialize much with congress, that
is the so-called debt ceiling, something most americans hadn't even heard of before two years ago. i want to be clear about this. the debt ceiling is not a question of authorizing more spending. raising the debt ceiling does not authorize more spending. it simply allows the country to pay for spending that congress has already committed to. these are bills that have already been racked up. and we need to pay them. so while i'm willing to compromise and find common ground over how to reduce our deficits, america cannot afford another debate with this congress about whether or not they should pay the bills they've already racked up. congressional republicans refuse to pay america's bills on time, social security checks and veterans' benefits will be delayed. we might not be able to pay our troops or honor our contracts with small business owners. food inspectors, air traffic controllers, specialists who track down loose nuclear materials wouldn't get their paychecks. investors around the world will ask if the united states of america is, in fact, a safe bet. markets could go haywire, intere
the president does not want to have these protracted fights over the debt ceiling because you have something that's so damaging if you can't reach an agreement and both sides ultimately know they have to get to some level of resolution so it becomes such a bad way to negotiate. the president institutionally would love to either get control of that, which he is unlikely to get, or to just make it a separate issue and then let them -- himself included -- all debate the deficit independent of raising the debt ceiling. he is making an argument. he is appealing directly to the american people about this. this press conference was mostly an argument about that very point, but at the same time you heard the president say that he is willing to make modifications to medicare. i know talking to other people close to him privately that that's very much on the table for him. so i think he would be open to looking for a way to now addressing entitlements, addressing some additional spending, and probably like some tax reform as well and keep the issue of revenue alive even if at the end of the day that h

. >> the debt ceiling is a fundamentally stupid but dangerous thing. we have congress that tells the president how much he must spend. tells him how much he's allowed to collect in taxes. he says there's a difference there. i have to borrow it. no, you can't borrow that. the whole debt ceiling thing itself is a crazy thing. it forces the president to do something illegal, either to defy congress on what it told him to spend or defy congress and borrow when it told him not to. >> krugman was one of the leading proponents of the trillion dollar coin idea which involved minting a platinum coin which would be deposited at the federal reserve allowing the government to pay off bills should congress fail to act. over the weekend the treasury d department ruled out the idea. >>> before we go to break. shoot me an e-mail at waytooearly@msnbc and let me know why you're awake. you can also tweet me. >>> still ahead on "way too early," a wild weekend for the nfl as the atlanta fallons break their playoff slump in dramatic fashion. i'll bring you all the weekend highlights next in sports, if i make it. >>
. the debt ceiling increase was seen as a procedure and a very partisan vote then but not something you were reporting on for weeks and months like we have in 2011 then and now on the debt ceiling debate and, of course, what happened in 2011 was a loss to the nation's credit rating. there's big differences between 2006 and now. >> and also, to factor in with the differences you pointed out is how much the president has offered in negotiations. as far as cutting spending, not as if it's been a zero sum game from the white house regarding the nation's spending problem and an acknowledgment of that. >> one of the messages president obama is trying to get across today how much is cut in spending, whether it was in that 2011 debt ceiling agreement in the budget control act, whether it was also the revenue that was increased with the end of the fiscal cliff talks that we had right at the beginning of the new year, tamron. so, president obama said, look, we have really cut a lot of spending. there's more that he would like to be able to do but that it would be ludicrous to suggest there's no spendi
is debt ceiling and what the president is saying there's no discussion on that. on the government shutdown, there seems to be a different tone from the president. i'll get to that in a minute but on debt ceiling, you're absolutely right. when you take that sentence, what he was trying to say because he's not talking about having plan "b"s in his back pocket, things like minting coins, 14th amendment which senate democrats are begging him to do. he's saying, no, if we default, he wants to make it clear then republicans will have decided not to send out social security checks, not to pay our military, not to do these things, so you're right, he's hoping that the political blame -- now, the irony here, chris, is senior republican leaders, they agree with the president on that. any though that that's a politically bad place for them to be. the question is it's going to shift to the government funding and shut down going forward and there talking to aides, they get -- that's up for negotiation. but they want it separated from debt creating. >> let's talk about this debt ceiling thing, howard. d
't control the white house is rarely happy about raising the debt ceiling. >> reporter: recent years a genuine threat not to do so. >> raising the nation's debt ceiling, the president told reporters is a necessity caused by spending in the past. not something to trade with congress for spending cuts in the future. >> they can act responsibility, and pay america's bills. or act irresponsibly and put america through economic crisis. >> treasury secretary geithner says accounting maneuvers let us hold out till march and obama suggested he is prepared to hold out longer by prioritizing what bills the government paid. >> social security checks and veteran benefits will be dela delayed. we might not pay the troop or honor contract. >> republicans reacted swif swiftly. john boehner said consequences of failing to increase the debt creeling are real but so, too, are the consequences of allowing our spending problem to go unresolved. the republicans challenge the notion that going through default. >> the default occurs if we don't pay interest that accrues on the national debt. that is not go
these republicans are ready to kill this congress. >> straighten something out. if we go over the debt ceiling, run -- >> we have already. >> we don't default, do we? we do not default. >> we don't ever really default. we can always continue to pay the bills, print the money. >> tax money comes in. >> talk politically. president obama will stump and campaign saying it will be unpay patriotic for the republicans to not raise a debt ceiling after he's already said it's unpatriotic to exceed the debt ceiling in 2007-2008. he's in a very, very tough place. i think the republicans in the house in congress will give him a hard time, won't make it an easy checkbook. they'll ask for something in return, not sure what it's going to be. they'll probably get it, some negotiation, but, again, we already exceed the debt ceiling. $16.4 trillion tim geithner, fudges numbers around, pay the bills until congress signs the increase in debt ceiling. >> a repeat of the fiscal cliff? >> that's what politics is in dc. this is all games, all threats, all the clock is ticking down. makes you worry if the country's going t
or so. the president has too deal with the debt ceiling. he wants to pass major immigration reform. >> absolutely. >> chris: do something about climate change. has he told you how much political capital he is willing to spend on what is going to be a very tough fight? >> i think that the president has demonstrated tremendous leadership on this issue. i think the country rallied around him and h his leadership because he really was a voice for the parents who lost a child. >> chris: has he told you how much -- >> and i see from his actions and we hear from the white house and we hear from the vice president that they are going to lay down political capital on the issue and i think the one thing i would say to those people like larry and others who said we can't do anything about these issues is that whether it comes from the background checks or dealing with high capacity magazines which was the issue in newtown we can take action and to say that we should do nothing really doesn't respond to those parents in newtown who lost children in this horrible tragedy. >> chris: thank you bo
minority leader came up with mitch mcconnell came up during the last debt ceiling crisis. give the president the authority to lift the debt ceiling but give congress the ability to reject the lifting of the debt ceiling but it requires them to vote to override the rejection and then if the president vetoes the rejection, they would have to have a two-thirds majority to override the president's override. the president today -- i should say during the fiscal cliff negotiations, the mcconnell provision fell by the wayside, but today at the press conference the president said several times -- >> give it to me. give me the responsibility and i will take it. . >> in the way mcconnell proposed. >> professor shrum, colin powell called out the gop's tactics on sunday. i'd like you to take a listen to colin powell. >> but in recent years there's been a significant shift to the right, and we have seen what that shift has produced, two losing presidential campaigns. >> professor shrum, this is your business. this is your profession. why is it so difficult for the gop to understand that the
about the dynamic you tried to pin the president down on the debt ceiling. tell us what your take-away is from all of this. >> i would sum it in two words. frustration and resignation. i want to point something out here. jay carney tweeted out one specific quotes, and i think it's telling what you tweeted out. he said if congressional republicans refuse to pay america's bills on time, social security checks and veterans benefits will be delayed. so -- that seem to be the point of this press conference when it comes to debt ceiling is that the burden is on the republicans to raise it, period. he won't negotiate. now, what i was trying to pin him down on was this idea of you say you're not going to negotiate, but don't you need a plan b then. if you're not going to negotiate, then go somewhere else, and his plan b seems to think, b, the republicans don't do it, then we're not going to pay our bills. that that's going to happen, and, yet, then he would -- it was interesting. i don't know if it's an opening or adair. we'll let others sort of interpret this. he said, of course, if hous

john boehner will raise the debt ceiling without commensurate spending cuts. he's way too far out on a limb on that prospect. so it's going to be one of these huge battles its going to be something where one side has to blink first or the issues have to kind of meld together in a way that speaker boehner or president obama has a fig leaf in order to get this done. >> woodruff: jake, what about the president's argument today? he said this several times. he said this is not about we're doing the debt ceiling in order to authorize more spending. he said it is about congress paying off the bills that it's already incurred. >> that argument is the same one that white house used in 2011. it didn't sit well with house republicans then. they've been saying for years whatever the reality is at the white house and whatever the president tries to say they've been saying for years that the nation has a spending problem not a taxation problem. it's very difficult for them to reverse that. they see this as the popular option. one of their internal polls showed that 74% of americans believe in s
. everybody is buzzing about the president's speech this morning, referring to the debt ceiling and america. we're not deadbeats. do you think anything was accomplishes at all or just more of the same? >> he accomplished something. he changed his tone a bit. he acknowledged that congress has a constitutional power and authority over the purse strngs. i think it was really remarkable to hear the president actually admit that congress had a right to its view, its opinions and its votes. that is big. the second thing in it all he made it very clear that anyone who disagrees with him lacks common sense and good judgment. he think anyone who is for guns is obviously not common senseal or prud don't or as -- prudent or enlightened as he. he acknowledged in his tone knows he will get his butt kicked in the political battle over guns the fact is, this media coalition that has been formed to drive the assault on the second amendment, the media, is not going to be strong enough to do get that done. it lacks the political wherewithal to --. melissa: you think he realizes that? >> i think he is getting

's inpatriotic and you can't vote against raising a debt ceiling, you can't go that way and later when you have all the cards or most of them, say, you know what, it's my way or the highway and now it's unpatriotic to let the-- t the congress as a failure of was being asked to vote to raise the debt ceiling back when he was a senator. >> right. >> megyn: now he's the leader. >> absolutely. i've got to tell you, look, you pick your battle grounds, okay? the fiscal cliff wasn't the right time and place to discuss this. the debt ceiling is not the right time and place to discuss this. i guess continuing resolution won't be the right time and place. and the president speaks one day maybe some republicans will come over and have tea and crumpets at the white house and have a gentlemanly discussion about this. we're talking action having to be taken and why you have the giant battlefields, guess what, this is a big battle. >> megyn: john, we were talking about this before we got started how the president seemed to have some swagger and seemed to be confrontational with the republicans isn't seem like
the way. we've got a debt ceiling issue that the president's going to have to deal with. there are a lot of other issues the president's going to have to deal with, immigration reform. i think the president's going to have to spend time on this whether he wants to or not. >> connie mack, nice to see you. >> nice to see you. >> please tell your lovely wife we're sorry she lost all her luggage and was stuck at the airport. >> love you, honey. >> we'll get back to john berman with a look at some of the other stories ahead this morning. >>> we'll be talking about the golden globes. ben affleck didn't get nominated for an oscar, but his surprise win at the globes may be vindication. we'll have that, the other surprises, and the big snubs in a live report. >>> he's known for his role on "breaking bad," but actor steven michael casada has a new role to play, local school board member. you should know that axiron is here. the only underarm treatment for low t. that's right, the one you apply to the underarm. axiron is not for use in women or anyone younger than 18. axiron can transfer to others
